    Stan Walker for 'YOU CAN'

    Post by Simona on Tue Feb 23, 2010 3:31 pm

    As Sony Foundation Ambassador Stan made a video to advertise the latest campaign:
    'YOU CAN'

    He is urging all of us to contribute.

    follow the link to see the video http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=342319251973

    For those who don't have Facebook here are some pics taken from the 'YOU CAN' campaign fan page and info about Sony Foundation and its campaigns.



    with the 'CanTeen Team'






    The charity raises money for parts of the community in need. Its current focus is building specialised cancer wards for young people aged 15 to 30.It’s a cause close to Stan’s heart, as his family has a tragic history of battling the disease.
    “Out of my grandmother’s 22 children, 18 have died from cancer. My cousin passed away from cancer last year, he was only 17. It was heartbreaking and the fact he was sharing a ward with old people made it worse,” he explained. “I feel privileged to be able to support the Sony Foundation in this important campaign.”

    Sony Foundation's YOU CAN campaign is raising funds to build youth cancer centres right around Australia. YOU CAN help. All you need to do is dig up that old mobile phone in your bottom drawer. That’s right, all we want is your rubbish! We’ll recycle that old mobile phone and generate funds for the YOU CAN campaign.

    For more info visit http://youcan.org.au/ or e-mail info@sonyfoundation.org.au


    We are so proud of you Stan
    I will contribute 1 or 2 mobiles... not sure what's in that drawer of mine hahaha....
    how many will you guys contribute?

    Recycle your phone? Yes, 'You Can'
    By Jill Mcann and Lauren Monaghan



    You Can ambassador Stan Walker recycling a phone to help raise
    money for teen cancer facilities.


    With Australians hanging on to over 20 million no longer used mobile phones, a new campaign has been launched to encourage phone recycling - saving waste, recovering and reusing resources and raising money for a good cause.

    Organised by technology giant Sony's charity arm, the Sony Foundation, the You Can campaign will collect unwanted phones (of all brands) through in-store collection bins and a Reply Paid mail-in program, refurbish and resell them - with the funds raised going towards the building of youth cancer centres across Australia.

    Mobile phones unable to be resold will be broken down and recycled through Irish-based company Folamh.

    The Australian mobile phone industry's official recycling program, Mobile Muster, which operates its own collection and recycling service, recently released a report showing that an estimated 21 million disused phones were being kept around the country - with 31 per cent of us having not one but two or more old phones languishing in cupboards and drawers.

    Some of the phones we keep are so old they can no longer connect to modern service providers, the study said, yet 35 per cent of people surveyed were still reluctant to recycle or donate them in the hopes they may one day be useful.

    Indeed, less than eight percent of phones are currently recycled, despite the variety of charities and recyclers willing to take them.

    "For many of us, we think about the initial cost of our old mobile phone and continue to value them at the same level," said social scientist Pol McCann, from the University of Technology in Sydney. "We should ask ourselves: do we really need them? Is the sentimental value more important than recycling?"

    When it comes to recycling phones, up to 90 per cent of their components can be given new life in everything from other phones to gold jewellery to fence posts.

    "Keeping phones at home is a waste of their materials," said Rose Read, Manager of Recycling with the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association. "By putting those materials back into the cycle we can replace raw materials - which in turn reduces energy use and greenhouse gas emissions."

    Many phones can also be touched up and resold as a whole, as the You Can campaign aims to do, helping to conserve resources that would otherwise be spent on entirely new products.

    "With mobile phones being upgraded approximately every 12 to 18 months, there is a continuous supply of mobile phones becoming obsolete each year that can be recycled, helping not only the environment but a wonderful cause," said Alexis Bicknell, speaking on behalf of the Sony Foundation.

    For more information on the You Can campaign and how to contribute, or to download a Reply Paid label for your phone, visit www.youcan.org.au.
